Citywide Serenade

Put me on a bus baby please put me right down to bed
I think that last Citywide finally got to my head
Think I've had enough of working think I'll just drink here instead
Baby please put me to bed

Well the barlights are dimming but I know they'll grow brighter again
As Wednesday approaches and Tuesday slurs down to its end
One more for the road became two more to stay in one place
And I thought you were smiling but I found that I can't feel my face

Put me on a bus baby please put me right down to bed 
I think that last Citywide finally got to my head 
Think I've had enough of working think I'll just drink here instead 
Baby please put me to bed

Camped out in the corner we're watching the world make its turns
I hum like a fiddle while you hope the neighborhood burns
Send a third down the hatch try to catch up to the first couple rounds
And we're falling behind but it beats trying not to fall down

Put me on a bus baby please put me right down to bed 
I think that last Citywide finally got to my head 
Think I've had enough of working think I'll just drink here instead 
Baby please put me to bed

There's a neon smear in this puddle of beer on the bar
And I'll stagger you home since it seems we've forgotten the car

But first let us drink to your health and your joie de vive
Hale fellow well met and his faithful inebriate Eve
And we'll roam through the garden and eat all the fruit that we please
Til the barkeep comes back and tosses us back to the seas

Put me on a bus baby please put me right down to bed 
I think that last Citywide finally got to my head 
Think I've had enough of working think I'll just drink here instead 
Baby please put me to bed
